Writing and implementing effective SOP 2017

Writing and implementing effective SOP 2017
Event on 2017-09-21 09:00:00
Course "Writing and implementing effective SOP's" has been pre-approved by RAPS as eligible for up to 12 credits towards a participant's RAC recertification upon full completion.


An SOP is a meticulous step-by-step description of how to do a task that leave no chance for errors and divergence. Writing a good SOP is not an easy job. It requires a firm understanding of the task to be described, an ability to describe in specific unique to that laboratory. Writing, implementing, maintaining and assessing, revising an SOP are all different and necessary jobs. Many people must continuously be involved in these steps.
Even a standardized method, such as an ASTM or IP method, is insufficiently written to pass as a well-written and compliant SOP. The reasons why will be described, as will the steps needed to convert a standard method into an SOP.
The necessary steps both within the laboratory and within the supporting areas for implementation and revision of an SOP are complex and will be described. These include recordkeeping, safety, training, and other areas.

Why should you attend:

A poorly written and followed SOP is one of the most common non-compliances that an auditor finds. If you are a laboratory worker, a supervisor, or manager of a laboratory seeking or under GLP or ISO 17025, you should know how to create and maintain a good SOP. Will your SOPs pass an audit or will they become a non-compliance corrective action?

Who will benefit:

• Anyone that creates / maintains SOPs
• VP, Director, Manager of any dept that writes SOPs or performs training
• QA / QC
• Regulatory Affairs

Lecture 1: What is the intention and role of SOPs. What tasks require SOPs? The network of SOPs within the Lab.
Lecture 2: What are the compliance requirements for an SOP? Roles and responsibilities. Can a Standard method be used as an SOP?

Lecture 4: Creating an SOP. For a new task. For a Standard method. Reviewing the first attempt (continued)

Day 2 Schedule

Hospital Chief Information Officers Take Cautious Approach to Implementing Cloud Technology, AIS Newsletter Finds

Washington, DC (PRWEB) February 11, 2015

As hospitals and other health care providers look for ways to simultaneously cut costs, improve care and patient engagement, and compete in the health care market, some are looking at cool high-tech solutions and applications that, increasingly, are cloud-based. But choosing a cloud vendor is easier said than done, information technology officers tell Atlantic Information Services, Inc.s (AIS) Report on Patient Privacy (RPP). Cris Ewell, chief information security officer at Seattle Childrens Hospital, and Pete Celano, director of consumer health initiatives at the MedStar Institute for Innovation, an arm of Washington, D.C.-area health care system MedStar Health, discuss what providers should consider in implementing cloud technology, in the February issue of RPP.

Seattle Childrens has not yet selected a cloud vendor, but implementation wont come as the result of a quick, or simple, decision, Ewell tells RPP, and offered some issues to consider.

Before moving data to a cloud, Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act (HIPAA) covered entities (CEs) need to weigh the risks associated with internal versus cloud hosting of data, Ewell says. This requires understanding how the vendor is configured: for example, if the cloud will be public or private, and whether it will be co-mingled with data from others. If the data is co-mingled, the cloud vendor could be a bigger target for hackers because of the amount of information that could be accessible, he explains.

Ewell also urges providers HIPAA officers to be actively involved in crafting the business associate agreement and contract that is signed by the vendor. Ewell says he may require that the vendor submit a copy of policy and procedure audits, as well as reports of any breaches it has had and how they were handled.

MedStar Health has already implemented cloud-based tools and products at their hospitals. ZocDocs, an online patient scheduling system, is one such product MedStar now offers patients. Some of its medical offices also use an electronic clipboard of sorts offered by Tonic Solutions, a private firm, which, Celano says, has proven to be popular with both patients and staff, and has not posed problems.

Cloud Seeding Website Content Methodology, 9 Steps to Implementing a Content Based SEO Campaign

Miami, FL (PRWEB) July 30, 2014

So you want your website to show up on page one of Google search results, but how do you get there. SEO? But what really is SEO? Most business owners have no idea what SEO really is or what to do to get their website ranking better in search results. There are lots of SEO companies promising page one results for as little as a few hundred dollars, but these promises are about as reliable as the snake oil salesman selling his elixir of life from the back of his wagon. Most business owners do not fully understand what it is that SEO companies do and send a check every month and just hope it works. So what do you do?

Cloud Seeding(SM), a metaphor for seeding the cloud with content, was created by Esotech as a simple explanation of how creating content on your website and blog, as well as throughout the internet, plus sharing it on social networks, helps your website content get found and increases the traffic and visibility of your site. Simply put, a Cloud Seeding campaign is a well planned content creation program where you create high quality content on your website and blog, along with complimentary content on social networks which refers to the site and blog. It is essential to understand that any “spammy” content or practices will not only defeat the purpose but could actually have the opposite effect and harm your search rankings.

9 Steps to Start Your Cloud Seeding Campaign

1. Review your website: make sure it is up to date and ask a professional website designer to review it for SEO compatibility.

2. Content/Editorial Calendar and Plan: create a content plan with relevant and informational articles scheduled along a theme or plan. Tie your articles and content together with complimentary articles. Plan your calendar for special events or product releases, seasonal events, etc. and plan for social network content.

3. Blog: if you have a blog, make sure you are creating content at least weekly and preferably more often.

4. Social networks: if you are on Facebook, Twitter, LinkedIn and Google Plus, that’s great. Review your pages and make sure they are up to date, the “About” information is correct, and freshen up your graphics. If you don’t have these pages set up on these social networks, this is a very high priority to get done ASAP.

5. Build Your Social Networks: You can build your LinkedIn network by reaching out to your contacts and clients and asking them to follow your company page. Make sure you are connected to all of them personally too. On Facebook you can run a modest Facebook ad campaign of just a dollar or two a day and get surprisingly good results for adding fans to your company page. On Twitter and Google Plus the best way to build is by active participation – posting great content and following relevant people.

6. Post Content on Social Networks: Start posting your content on your social networks. On Twitter it’s OK to repost content a few times since people may miss it the first time. Tweeting a new blog 2 or 3 times over the course of the first day is fine and again a few times over the next few days. For Facebook, Google Plus and LinkedIn one post of a new blog is best, otherwise it looks like spam. However, you could repost blogs from several months ago since they are buried in the feed. It’s not just about your latest blog or product release. Post other content too. Post pictures of your staff, customers, events. Make it interesting and fun!

7. Contribute, Share and Participate: Become a great resource for information about your niche. Post content from relevant publications or other blogs that are quality content and interesting. In general, it’s good to publish about 10% to 20% of your own content and 80% content from other high quality sources. There are exceptions, for example if you are a mega brand or entertainment company, then nearly all of your content would be your brand.

8. Guest Posts: Before the recent round of Google updates, Guest Posts were a great way to build links and SEO for your site. Much of the SEO value has been lost for many Guest Posts, but they are still worth doing and some still have SEO value if they are done right.

9. Monitor Activity: Check the metrics for your website and social platforms at least monthly to see how things are going. Find out what’s working and what’s not. Google Analytics will show your website metrics and user behavior. Facebook Insights will provide excellent data, including demographics for your Facebook page. LinkedIn and Twitter have limited data available but you can use third party reporting programs to obtain better reports.

Of course there is much more, but this should get you started on your Cloud Seeding campaign and on your way to better search results, more traffic from social media and much better brand recognition.

Bop Design Outlines Five Areas of Failure When Implementing Responsive Web Design

San Diego, CA (PRWEB) March 22, 2014

In 2012, Google released a study showing that 67 percent of people are more likely to purchase from a mobile friendly website. Since those findings, more and more websites are implementing responsive web design to address mobile and tablet visitors.

We stress the importance of optimizing a website for the variety of devices customers use to access the web. After taking the leap to go responsive, its important to remember responsive design isnt a simple copy and paste job, explains Kara Jensen, creative principal of Bop Design. While the optimized website design should reflect the native sites branding, different devices demand different viewing needs.

Jensen continues on the top five areas most websites fail to optimize when creating a responsive website:

Lengthy copy

Scrolling is the death of mobile visits. If your current copy is lengthy, it may be best to reevaluate it for smaller screens, says Jensen. She continues with suggesting businesses try getting the same message across in fewer words or delete whole paragraphs together if it provides low value and low customer engagement.

Unappealing images

The development backend will automatically resize images to fit devices, but its still important to evaluate images on high value pages such as the homepage and service pages. Perhaps product images need updating because the details are too smallits OK to scrap images for the optimized site in favor for others that will complement the mobile experience. Additionally, scaling down the total number of images of a webpage will help load times.

Annoying ads and popups

Be sure to remove all ads and popups from your mobile and tablet sites as these are not easily modified for mobile devices. They also slow load times and are difficult to close out of when using a smaller screen.

Long videos

A current website developer should know to implement an HTML5 video player so video streams smoothly over mobile. Additionally, Jensen suggests watching the video on a mobile device to experience it as your visitor and modify the time and quality if needed.

Un-friendly navigation

Navigation is critical to a successful websiteregardless of platform, says Jensen. There should be a responsive equivalent page to every page on the native site. At times, a responsive site may even feature more pages when copy needs to be broken up to attract visitors. Additionally, the navigation menu on the responsive website should be finger friendly, meaning the navigation bar is large enough for user to tap on their smartphone or tablet.

Dr. George Panagiotou from London School of Marketing presents a universal practical method for implementing Key Success Factors and Critical Success Factors

London, England (PRWEB UK) 17 October 2013

London School of Marketing has released a new whitepaper, entitled Key Success Factors (KSFs) and Critical Success Factors (CSFs): Towards an Integrative Theory in Strategy Development, which reviews previous theoretical literature on the subject, and offers a way to further enhance the theorys connection to business and management practice. A successful, experienced academic, Dr. George Panagiotous ideas are exciting and should be considered by anybody interested in strategic business development.

To create an effective strategic plan an organisation needs to first understand the factors which control their fate. London School of Marketings latest whitepaper informs the reader that these are called Key Success Factors (KSFs) and Critical Success Factors (CSFs). They have been in a state of organic development since the early 1960s, with leading academics, business thinkers and management consultants expanding upon the work that has been produced before them. The whitepaper starts by conducting an in-depth review of this literature.

After a thorough examination of the relevant literature, ample evidence was found to suggest that this particular theory is weak and misguided and has remained elusive over the years, despite its importance in the process of decision making and in the development of organisational capabilities and competitive strategies, Dr. Panagiotou found. However, as York (1988) noted, from the early days of the theory, despite the importance of the KSFs and CSFs in the area of strategy most managers are vague about what exactly they are, how they work, and the problems inherent in using them.

The terms KSFs and CSFs are familiar throughout the world of management, with the theories also taught in business schools and professional courses. But the conceptual nature of the theory has never been developed into a universally accepted practical application for the ideas. London School of Marketings whitepaper proposes a method for how to actively use the theories to reveal the fundamental factors that hold the power balance between success and failure by continuing the theories development.

We should split the combined terms of KSFs and CSFs into two distinct terms and refocus them onto the two main organisational environments in a way that KSFs will be concerned with the external environment and CSFs with the internal environment of the organisation, explains Dr. Panagiotou. Hence in an effort to achieve and maintain superior performance, the KSFs are viewed as value drivers in the external environment whereas the CSFs are viewed as value creators in the internal environment.

London School of Marketing deliver accredited marketing and business qualifications, and offer courses from recognised professional bodies such as CIM, ABP and CAM and BA (Hons) Marketing, MA Marketing and Innovation and a MBA from Anglia Ruskin University. Based in London, they also have offices in Sri Lanka, a network of Overseas Support Branches (OSBs), and online programmes of learning. There courses are run over a broad range of study modes.

Leading Toronto Online Marketing Company Numero Uno Web Solutions Announces Its Top Tips for Implementing a Localized, Multicultural, Multilingual SEO and SEM Campaign

Toronto, Ontario (PRWEB) March 19, 2013

Numero Uno Web Solutions (NumeroUnoWeb.com), a fast-growing global Internet marketing firm that caters to small- and mid-sized business-to-consumer companies, is pleased to announce its top tips for developing a localized, multicultural, multilingual search engine optimization (SEO) and search engine marketing (SEM) campaign.

As the experts at Numero Uno Web Solutions note, while the Internet has brought the world to a persons doorstep, if businesses want to increase web traffic and sales, they need to foster local SEO and SEM campaigns that reach the largest possible target audience, especially if the business relies on local Internet or foot traffic.

As the SEO experts report, when searching for a local business, 59% of potential clients (83% of which are under the age of 35) turn to search engines first. Less than 10% visited the merchants site directly.

To ensure small- and medium-sized businesses are targeting the largest possible audience, its imperative that these businesses implement a localized SEO campaign that is culturally and linguistically sensitive, says Andy Wu, Business Development Manager at Numero Uno Web Solutions.

The Numero Uno Web Solutions experts explain that as one of the worlds most multicultural cities, Toronto is a mosaic of cultures, in which over 140 languages and dialects are spoken. Today, over 30% of Toronto residents speak a language other than English or French at home. The top non-official home languages include Chinese, Tamil, Italian, Spanish, and Portuguese.

There is more to a local multilingual SEO and SEM campaign than simply translating the content, adds Wu. Its about creating a site that adapts to culture, language, geography, and consumer behaviourand exceeds the exacting demands the savvy multicultural online community expects. That includes site design, imagery, colors, user experience, and navigation.

To guarantee a site is optimized for multilingual SEO and SEM, the experts at Numero Uno Web Solutions say that small- and medium-sized businesses need to hire an online marketing team that is fluent in the target language and understands the culture, search engine optimization, and the best way to promote the web site. Doing so means businesses can increase their target audience and crack into a previously untapped market.

Numero Uno Web Solutions is one of the top Internet marketing firms due to constant innovation and overall customer satisfaction.

No Shortcuts James Schramko Advises Implementing Real SEO in Preparation for Coming Algorithm Changes

Sydney, NSW (PRWEB) March 17, 2013

A major search engine recently announced that it will be releasing updates of its controversial algorithms in the next few days. As the global online marketing scene anticipates the wave of new SEO changes that could determine the future success or failure of their Web properties, seasoned Internet marketer James Schramko shares a simple yet highly significant tip that can give website owners a greater chance of emerging from the updates with minimal slaps.

Panda is the name of the algorithm first released in February 2011 that aimed to weed out low-quality sites and bring high-quality websites higher up the major search engine’s search results pages. The last refresh of this algorithm took place in January this year and affected 1.2% of all English queries.

The search engine’s distinguished software engineer and head of search spam also gave a heads-up that its other algorithm, the Penguin, will also be updated in 2013 a development which he predicts will be one of the more talked-about algorithm updates for the year.

With these search engine updates expected to rock the foundations of the SEO industry, Schramko reminds online marketers to let go of any low-quality SEO practices that they may still be setting into motion. “You’ve got to stop buying these cheap backlinks or using automated tools. That is not going to get you the results,” he stresses.

“If you want to do SEO yourself, the very best thing you can do is put well-considered, helpful content on your website, and then have that shared and then go and put feature content on other peoples websites in your market or your category.” Schramko suggests putting original, engaging, and informative content on forums and industry blogs. Making relevant and worthwhile comments on other peoples blogs and submitting guest content to other sites are also healthy ways of generating good traffic and making positive impacts on customer’s Web browsing experiences. “Thats how you get known. Thats true SEO, so stop the tricks.”

In anticipation of the Panda update, Schramko shares that the professional team behind his own ventures will also be analyzing their sites and studying their portfolios in order to pinpoint any significant changes. These traffic and Web development experts will then adjust their traffic processes accordingly in order to successfully ride out the changes.

As for the Penguin update, the entrepreneur points out a specific practice that site owners will need to step away from. “The main thing to watch for there is over-manipulation of back links,” says Schramko. “There are no shortcuts. Do the work, get the results, and deal with a professional team.”

To experience premium SEO services from a reliable provider, visit SEOPartner’s website today. Signing up for the high-quality website promotion services of LinkJuice.com, also founded by Schramko, is another good way to add great content to websites and prepare for the upcoming algorithm refresh.

Toronto SEO and SEM Company Numero Uno Web Solutions Announces Its Top Tips for Implementing an Effective Online Video Campaign

Toronto, Ontario (PRWEB) March 09, 2013

Numero Uno Web Solutions (NumeroUnoWeb.com), a fast-growing global Internet marketing firm that caters to small- and mid-size business-to-consumer companies, announces its top tips for implementing an effective online video campaign.

According to Numero Uno Web Solutions, one of the goals of search engine optimization (SEO) and search engine marketing (SEM) is to create content that gets noticed and creates a buzz. When a search engine like Google finds a site with well-executed SEO that links back to its site and to other quality sites, it concludes that the brand provides quality information and should be rewarded with a high ranking.

While different strategies can impact search rankings in different ways, leveraging YouTube or personalized videos is one major underutilized way brands can increase search engine page results and enhance click through rates, says Andy Wu, Business Development Manager at Numero Uno Web Solutions.

Video is also the fastest way a small- or medium-sized business can share its story and explain the brand. Furthermore, according to Numero Uno Web Solutions, video is a great way to build links back to the site. Whether a video is informative, humorous, controversial, instructional, or inspirational, it must contain helpful, relevant, fresh, and actionable content that people want to share. The more often content like a video is shared, the better it is for the brands online presence, according to the companys SEO experts.

Its important to remember that Google, the worlds most important search engine, also owns YouTube. As a result, Google isnt going to ignore the growing prominence video has in the online community. That doesnt mean a successful SEO campaign has to revolve around a video. But it can be an important part of the creative process, Wu adds.

Regardless of budget, Numero Uno Web Solutions can help design a video campaign that seamlessly mixes keyword-rich, relevant content with complementary video, and helps attract and inform potential customers and increase click-through rates.

Numero Uno Web Solutions is one of the top Internet marketing firms due to constant innovation and overall customer satisfaction.
